AWR Records have released the Distant Worlds II: More Music From Final Fantasy arrangement album on vinyl.

A vinyl release of the first Distant Worlds album, which was originally released in 2007, was released on vinyl and made available for purchase at the 2017 Distant Worlds tour in celebration of Final Fantasy’s 30th anniversary.
It’s unclear which show was the first where these were available.
Square Enix will be releasing an album with arranged versions of some of Yasunori Mitsuda’s music for these titles.
It was set to be released on December 15, 2015, but due to a manufacturing issue it was delayed to early January, 2016.
Japanese copies were shipped with three discs as they did not remove the faulty disc from the release. However, a disc with the fault corrected was also included with those copies. The fault was simply that the track order on Side D was incorrect.
The EU Square Enix Store only had 150 copies to sell. The NA Store didn’t open up for pre-orders until February, 2016 (with expected release late March same year).
An orchestral 12″ of Yasunori Mitsuda’s music for the game have been released by Square Enix.
